Full system scan gets stuck and doesn't proceed. Happened more than once with different files
Two days ago I did my first time full system scan and after 10million items, it got stuck on a 6GB zip file. When I stopped it, it got stuck again and I had to reboot. note: it said 'Pausing' when I tried to stop. Should it say 'stopping'? During the reboot, it had to do a disk repair!
Yesterday I started a full scan again and again, it got stuck. On a 2k file! I couldn't reboot it so I did a hard reset. Again, it initiated a disk repair!
Why on earth when I restart the computer, Windows 10 does a disk repair? This makes me uncomfortable as one day I feel Windows will get corrupted and won't reboot properly. Norton is supposed spending most of its time reading files. So I don't understand why the disk corruption is happening.
And why it's having difficult time scanning a 2k file? and pegging the cpu? and causing corruption? and my monitors do not sleep and probably because of it.
I am having a bad experience with it and feel I do not want to do anymore full system scans. I deleted the 2k file and I am going to do one more full scan and see how it goes.
